Sackhoff, Molla Join Twohy’s “Riddick”

Katee Sackhoff (“Battlestar Galactica”) and Jordi Molla (“Colombiana”) have both been added to the cast of David Twohy’s currently in production “Riddick”, the third feature film to star Vin Diesel’s eponymous anti-hero according to Deadline and Variety.

Sackhoff is in final negotiations to play Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tasked with tracking down Riddick. Molla would play Santana, a leader of an eight-man crew of bounty hunters bent on killing Riddick.

Picking up where ‘Chronicles’ left off, Twohy’s script has the Furyan left for dead on a harsh planet with three moons, populated with nasty creatures like trisons and mud demons, and being hunted by at least two shipfuls of mercenaries.

As previously reported, Karl Urban is said to be reprising his role as Lord Vaako from the previous film.
